Zelman Cottage is a historical property of great artistic significance. Originally built circa 1910 by Australian artist, Victor Alexander Zelman, as a holiday home for him and his wife Clara, the cottage features an intact frieze painted by Victori in the lounge room. A sensitive refurbishment has been undertaken to keep the frieze in tact and present the cottage in a neutral and calming palette. Not much has changed except the addition of modern luxurious bathrooms and beautiful furniture and linen.
Three bedrooms sleep six, with lovely entertaining areas to the back looking out onto the beautiful gardens that the Zelman's tended to and loved spending their time in. A north facing deck is there for entertaining in the summer and a cosy wood heater is situated in the lounge where you can sit with a red wine and study the work of the hand-painted frieze and imagine days gone by.
This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a place of historical significance and stay in a cottage where so much art, music, love and big conversations took place under the ownership of, Victor Alexander Zelman, Australian Artist, 1877 -1958.
